What inspires you to achieve your dreams?
Sometimes, it’s truly the simplest of things.


On a lovely night in 1997, Mary and Ben were having dinner at a restaurant full of memorabilia and old family photos.  It made them ache for a time in their young lives when everyone was treated warmly and respectfully.  Who wouldn’t want to be treated this way now?  Why couldn’t they create that kind of environment in a modern day optometric practice? Why couldn’t they bring the latest optometric and optical technology & fashion and combine it with old fashioned and caring service?  They could!

Montgomery Eye Care is the loving culmination of their collective dream.

For the past 17 years, Montgomery Eye Care has provided exceptional eye care and eyewear in our community.  It’s a place of comfort and fashion. A place of technology with “ a peaceful, easy feeling”.  It’s the place to come if you just want to be treated well.  It’s that easy.
